Taylor Swift Sings FRIENDS’ ‘Smelly Cat’ with Lisa Kudrow

Comments Off on Taylor Swift Sings FRIENDS’ ‘Smelly Cat’ with Lisa Kudrow

Taylor Swift has been bringing out surprise celebrity guests for many of her shows, but for TV nerds, nothing may top her guest on Wednesday night: Lisa Kudrow.

And though Swift has brought out TV actors in the past (Chris Rock and Kudrow’s FRIENDS co-star Matt LeBlanc were guests at an earlier Los Angeles show), this time she had Kudrow join her for a duet of the FRIENDS classic song, “Smelly Cat.”

(For non-FRIENDS fans: “Smelly Cat” was a song Kudrow’s character Phoebe wrote that popped up several times during the NBC comedy’s run — though, technically, viewers also learned that Phoebe’s biological father sang a similar sounding song to his daughter when she was very young.)

And, really, to see a live performance of “Smelly Cat” is pretty freaking great…

LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS: Matt LeBlanc’s Dr. Drake Ramoray Cameos in ‘Distinguished Guests’

Comments Off on LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS: Matt LeBlanc’s Dr. Drake Ramoray Cameos in ‘Distinguished Guests’

Matt LeBlanc appeared on Thursday night’s episode of LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS, and before his interview, he paid a little homage to his time on FRIENDS — he cameoed as Dr. Drake Ramoray (Joey’s DAYS OF OUR LIVES CHARACTER) in Meyers’ regular segment, “Distinguished Guests.”

Miss the spot? Check it out…

Personally, I never want a FRIENDS full-on revival, but I love that the actors often appear on each other’s shows and do things like this.

Did you like Dr. Drake Ramoray’s appearance on LATE NIGHT?

Which Current TV Stars Appeared on FRIENDS?

January 2, 2015 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Friends

The entire series of FRIENDS just hit Netflix — not to mention you can catch reruns nonstop on multiple channels — and while the show’s stars (Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer) are well-known (and several have their own shows now), a lot of current television stars appeared on the NBC comedy back in the day. (No, seriously, there are 62 of them who appeared on FRIENDS. It’s kind of insane.)

Need an (alphabetical) refresher? Check it out…

The ARCHER star -- and WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? host -- appeared in nine episodes in seasons 9 and 10 as Charlie, a love interest for both Joey and Ross.

Comments Off on FRIENDS is Coming to Netflix

FRIENDS is coming to Netflix on January 1, 2015 (in the US and Canada) — which is the first time the comedy has streamed anywhere (in full) legally — and to celebrate things, the streaming site made a video of the Rembrandts singing the theme song in the New York City pop-up Central Perk…with a familiar face…

Comments Off on FRIENDS 20th Anniversary: The Show Summed Up in 236 Seconds

Today is FRIENDS’ 20th birthday, and Warner Bros. UK has crafted a 236-second recap of the series (one second for every episode of the show), and it is simultaneously funny and really odd. (There are a TON of things missing, including any of the weddings.)

But any FRIENDS is good FRIENDS, so in case you’re missing the show today…

FRIENDS: TBS to Air 20-Episode Marathon to Celebrate the Show’s 20th Anniversary

friends-thumbFRIENDS is turning 20 on Monday, September 22nd, and to celebrate the occasion, TBS is airing a 20-episode marathon (from 10 AM-8 PM) that will consist of episodes that fans have voted in. (You can vote via Facebook (www.facebook.com/TBSveryfunny) and Twitter (twitter.com/tbsveryfunny) using #FavoriteFriends.)

It’s no secret I love FRIENDS, and this announcement got me thinking about what my perfect FRIENDS 20-episode marathon would look like — I think my marathon would have to consist of “The One with the Prom Video,” “The One with the Embryos,” “The One That Could Have Been” (parts 1&2), and about half of the Thanksgiving episodes (especially “The One Where Ross Got High” and “The One with the Rumor”), and any odd mix of various other episodes.

But I’m curious…what episode(s) is must-have on your perfect FRIENDS marathon? And will you be voting for it to be included in the TBS marathon?

Filed under #1 featured, Friends

Oh. My. God.

We’re about a month away from the 20th anniversary of FRIENDS’ debut, and JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE may have given FRIENDS fans the closest thing to a reunion as we’re going to get: he hosted a reunion of Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow on his show Wednesday night.

Aniston was the official guest, and Kimmel told her he had written some FRIENDS fan-fic he wanted her help acting out. Cut to a recreation of Monica and Chandler’s apartment (which Rachel lived in for half of the series), and surprise guests Cox and Kudrow.

Miss KIMMEL? Check out the amazing clip now…

FRIENDS Poll: Were Ross and Rachel on a Break?

Filed under #1 featured, Friends

16 years (and one day) ago, FRIENDS’ Rachel uttered words she’d soon come to regret to Ross, her boyfriend of a year: “Maybe we should take a break.” He, at first, thought they should get some froyo, but she quickly clarified, “No. A break from us.”

And things were never quite the same for the duo again.

GO ON Stages a FRIENDS Reunion: Courteney Cox to Guest Star

Comments Off on GO ON Stages a FRIENDS Reunion: Courteney Cox to Guest Star

The FRIENDS cast hasn’t been shy about hosting their own mini-reunions on the shows they’ve starred on since the NBC comedy went off the air in 2004, but this particular reunion has me incredibly excited: an NBC rep confirms that Courteney Cox will guest star on an upcoming episode of her former TV hubby Matthew Perry’s new series, GO ON. (And if you’re not watching GO ON, why not? It’s a lovely show you should be checking out.)

According to The Hollywood Reporter (who was first to break the casting), the duo will once again be potentially romantically matched when one of Ryan’s (Perry) group mates tries to set him up with Cox’s character. The episode is set to air in April.

Um, so I’m excited about this…how about you?
